Now I've always been a staunch supporter of hot rods, race cars, and you can do what ever you want with what you own. But this just doesn't sit right. :headshake

Some people on another forum are predicting this will do wheelstands. I doubt it, I don't think there's enough weight on the rear wheels to get enough bite for that. :headshake

Audi...

Gravdigr 05-04-2017 04:15 PM

Mechanic: There seems to be a timing issue.

Owner: Burn it.

xoxoxoBruce 05-04-2017 04:24 PM

Notice all those plastic chain guides? Reminds me of LJ's motor with I think less than 50k and the mechanic told him they had about one good ride left. Replacing them in the Audi would cost more than LJ's bike is worth... after he fixed it up. have to pull the engine out.
You're right, burn it.

Gravdigr 05-04-2017 04:51 PM

I'm a-guessing that doesn't go in your average grocery getter.

You buy that you can't afford groceries. :rolleyes:
Unless you're rich enough so you don't fetch your own.

I realize itís a top of the line, King Ranch, diesel, dually, with all the bells and whistles, but $37,500 for a 7 year old truck with 96,000 miles blows my mind.
I wonder what it cost new?

The Buick I can understand, but I'm surprised I've never seen one of these Caddys. :mg: Maybe I have and didn't know it was a limo/wagon?

Mercedes R63 AMG Owner Completes DIY Engine Rebuild Dealer Said Would Cost $57,000

xoxoxoBruce 06-01-2017 05:12 PM

Damn your eyes! I had to read your link then follow their link to the Grass Roots thread where he fires up the engine on page 86 of that thread, then read all the way to the last post on page 100 to find out how much he saved.

Quote:

What did this cost?
Well, the tools section was $3150. $2800 of that was the lift, engine hoist, and three new torque wrenches. The rest is one set of inverse torx, a set of long allen sockets, and a couple of specialty MB parts to pull the cams. Slippery's tool is priceless of course.
Parts were only $3300 which is quite a lot less than I thought it was going to be, mostly because I didn't put new cam phasers on. I might regret that later, but they were $500 each and there are four of them. It would have seemed stupid cheap if I didn't have to spend that last $400 on a new AC compressor.
So the total cost, all in, to get the van back on the road was $6450. Saved myself about $50k and got a lift. Not too shabby.

"It's not the parts mate, it's the labor, init."

Any indication how many hours involved, Ford dealers round here charge $100 an hour, a Mercedes dealer, gotta be more.

I bet these would have been a hot item on the surplus market if they were produced.

My semi local Ford dealer was $275 an hour a few years ago.

Put your Ford dealer on your Christmas card list.

I would kill for that wagon. The reality is it would drive like a '53 Chevy six cylinder automatic, with stiff springs and feeble shocks. The fit and finish would be '50s show car with little thought to longevity in the real world. I don't fucking care! I want it! http://cellar.org/2015/willy_nilly.gif
